Shying bedroom recordings out from behind closed doors, Prequel Tapes returns with forthcoming EP On The Run, out November 29th. This follows Dinge, a mixed media project with Mare Nero earlier in the year and experiments with collaging the same interdisciplinary approach into a singular audio representation of various influences.

Undulating basslines define an aching nostalgia forged in memories, injecting fragmented rhythms unregulated by current rave landscapes into weaponised melodies and voice-overs soaked in unease. It’s this reach for a time gone by that simultaneously accelerates the unpredictable sound of Prequel Tapes into a future grounded in mechanical symbiosis.

The end result finds itself caught in a continuum wavering between past and future, yet never settling in the present long enough to be complicit. Prequel Tapes slinks into industrial spaces, trapping their shadows and sewing them into his productions. It’s a melding of youthful upbringings yearning for adventure, imagined by its receivers through reminiscent sounds of the underground.

After years of producing music, it was some old DAT recordings from my youth that were to kick start Prequel Tapes. Listening to those recordings was like a flight back into the past. Understanding these recordings was to realise why I do what I am doing.
Again a circle is closing. I find it´s very enjoyable to open and close all those circles. Time is relative.
Nothing is new, nothing is old.
